About the Performers
Nepal Hip-Hop Foundation (NHF) is a growing community of dancers, artists, and educators. NHF was established in 2009 with the purpose of offering youth “learn-earn through fun” as alternatives to drug abuse and violence. It is a youth-centered organization that works directly with young people of different backgrounds and ethnicities in Nepal. The organization particularly focuses on the disadvantaged to give them hope and opportunities.
Since its establishment, NHF has been a huge platform in building community leaders and role models, inspiring hundreds of youths/dancers and children in Nepal. NHF believes that everyone can learn and everyone can teach; we all have the capacity to be positive role models to others and leaders in our own communities by bringing positive change. NHF uses hip-hop as a tool for educating and promoting the involvement of youth in social issues.
